With most ODI wickets and catches in history, former captain Jhulan Goswami has been an integral part of India Women cricket for over a decade and a half. She was named ICC Women s Cricketer of the Year 2007 and has been honoured with the Arjuna Award and Padma Shree. She had a memorable outing in Women s World Cup 2017, where she saved her best for the last. She bagged 3 for 23 at Lord s. However, the 2017 World Cup has been the last where one saw the likes of Mithali Raj and Jhulan playing in blues. At an event organised by Fanattic Sports Museum in Kolkata on Tuesday, Jhulan announced about her upcoming biopic.

Several big names are shortlisted for the role, one of them being that of Bipasha Basu. Jhulan was not sure who it will eventually be: I have no idea. It is completely the director s choice. I do not know anything about acting or directing. He will be the one taking the call, Jhulan told CricketCountry.

To find a player who carries the potential to become the next Jhulan Goswami is an untouched aspect. Jhulan, however, feels the current lot should consider becoming better than her: It is very difficult [to name one]. There are plenty of good quality cricketers and at the end of the day everyone is a match-winner. I would rather say: Don t be Jhulan Goswami be better than Jhulan Goswami .

However, Jhulan feels it is the efforts that count. All the wickets I have taken are memorable for me. There is lot of efforts, planning and strategies that are put in place to get a wicket. The 195 wickets that I hold, are very special.
